    The food was rushed and is way overpriced for pizza and pasta! The cocktails were awful and should have sent them back! My fault! The ambiance is great… no complaints there! We were in and out in 1.5 hours which felt way too rushed! Wouldn’t go back 😖

    F'Amelia NEVER disappoints! The specials of the day sounded really appealing, although we had our eyes on pizzas. The staff were wonderfully welcoming even though we brought an extra person along. The salads are top-notch and the pizzas are beyond excellent. We were celebrating a birthday and, at the end of the meal, f'Amelia surprised us with an elegant presentation of tiramisu complete with burning birthday candle and applause from the staff. We left full and happy, looking forward to a return visit soon!

    I had the pork ragu. It was $32 and was not the quality I had expected. Pork was tough. Flavour was poor. I would not recommend that dish if asked.

    This is a very comfortable and friendly neighbourhood restaurant that’s worth travelling to visit as well. Warm and cosy in the winter with a nice patio and open feeling in the spring and summer.. the food feels like homemade Italian and the service is friendly without being overbearing. The kind of place you wanna go back to every now and then.

    Service was great; friendly, attentive, timely. Food was delicious, cooked perfectly. Drinks were tasty. Ambiance was good (lights could have been dimmed a little more) but sound was okay and even with a full restaurant, we could enjoy the conversation at our table. Overalll a wonderful evening out with friends. We’ll be back again soon. Four-and-a-half stars out of five.

    Fantastic service from everyone at the restaurant! Had an allergy that they took very seriously and accommodated us going above and beyond. Food was fresh and delicious, especially gnocchi and the wood oven pizza! Vegan options for those who are vegan or have issues with dairy! 10/10 all across the board for service and food, highly recommend!

    My partner and I dined for Valentine's Day dinner. We have been to Famelia several times, have a few favourites on the menu we were looking forward to ordering. I booked on open table and there was no mention of a set menu when I had booked. The restaurant called me a few days in advance to confirm we were coming, but did not mention there would be a set menu. We sat for dinner and noticed a set menu on the table. Upon noticing this, we asked the man who brought us to our table if the regular menu was available and he said no. I then asked how much the set menu was and he responded "I don't know, sorry" and he did not proceed to check. Anyways my partner and I went with it even though we don't love set menus (cause we usually don't have dessert and my partner is vegetarian and he doesn't like to have a single option to choose from). We thought the food served was OK, I enjoyed my seafood boullabaiss but my partner did not enjoy his lasagne much. Aside from this we were quite disappointed with our server. Her responses felt sharp and we did not feel the hospitality and comfort we've received here upon our other experiences. Further, as I did not want my dessert my partner ordered a tiramisu and then a lemon tart for himself to try. At the end she brought out the lemon tart on its own. He tried half but was not a fan and asked the server if he could have the other dessert we ordered. She then proceeded to bring us the bill and machine after which we were confused. Politely, my partner asked if he could still have the other dessert he ordered. She rudely said "oh you want the other dessert" and snatched the bill and proceeded to tear it up. She then brought him the chocolate mousse (instead of the tiramisu). After all this, we were shell shocked to see a $300 bill, from the $110 per person set menu we couldn't be told the price of, alongside HST and an automatic 22% gratuity on top. No alcohol/drinks.. very disappointed with this experience overall.
    F'Amelia RistoranteResponded on February 20, 2024
    Hi we are very concerned that you did not have the experience you have enjoyed previously with us! Eventhough the set menu was on OpenTable, I personally called every guest to ensure that they knew about what we planned for that special night. I am so sorry if during that phone call I didn't tell you. I honestly have no idea how I could have forgotten to mention the menu when I called specifically for that reason (I try to be quick on my calls as to not take up too much time). I hope you give us another chance to regain your trust. Every diner who comes to our little side street is important to us and am honestly sorry we didn't deliver this time!

    We have going here since the first week it opened and it is our go to favourite restaurant. The ambience is warm and the staff are amazing. Special call out to our server Nicky last night who was great as always and also to Graham who served our wine. We shared a diavola pizza and a very generous bowl of marinated warm olives to start. Partner had tagliatelle bolognese and I had a terrific lamb loin with fingerling potatoes and spinach. Divine. All helped with a well priced and smooth Valpolicella. Special thanks to Tanya and her team for yet another amazing evening.

    We had the calamari. It was light and tasty. My wife had the gnocchi and had the bolognese. Both were excellent but the portions were smaller than expected. For the price what would it take to put a little more past a in the plate. The mousse for dessert was excellent. The waiter was polite and knowledgeable but never came back to ask how the food was or fill out wine glasses until our meal was done. Overall an excellent experience, but just short of a five star experience.

    This place doesn’t seem as magical as it used to be. The building feels like it’s in a state of disrepair, the music was far too loud, the menu hasn’t changed, the food was ok, the prices were reasonable but high enough that I expected more from the restaurant. Service was ok, I’ve had better at this location.
    F'Amelia RistoranteResponded on January 3, 2024
    Hi James! So sorry we weren't up to what you expected. We do have a very old building for sure;...that's why we built brand new bathrooms and had a new mural on our east face last year. This year we reimagined the front of the building with new trim and fresh stucco...along with new lights and started rebuilding our patio. Our food, I believe, is better than it has ever been in our 12 years of being in business too; seven new items in the past month alone. Give us another chance to wow you...if you look past our imperfections we promise to do our very best!

    Despite the holiday rush, we were seated at our favourite table and had a wonderful holiday dinner. As usual, the food was outstanding. F'Amelia makes the BEST pizza crust in the city - three of us had pizza so a consensus opinion! Wine options are excellent with knowledgable staff answering all of our questions about possibilities. Ambiance is warm and welcoming. We couldn't be happier!

    I have had the joy and privilege of dining at F’Amelia for many years. It is a warm, delicious and always-memorable experience. You can taste the love in the food, and feel it in the air. The vibe is unique, and elevated, without a hint of stuffiness. It’s the place to celebrate a special occasion, or a random Tuesday. It suits all. The menu has always been, and remains, perfection. Oh, that risotto! (If you know, you know.) There is something for everyone. Here, you savour every bite, and plan your next visit before you’ve even walked out the door. It’s that wonderful.
